Peregrine Shortlisted for Prestigious Re:locate Award
Peregrine Immigration Management Ltd is delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for a Re:locate Award in the category for Technological Innovation in Relocation.
Our success, of course, is due to Immiguru – our revolutionary new software that is changing the way the global mobility industry works. Immiguru is a web-based global immigration knowledge database, containing clear and comprehensive details on more than 300 immigration processes to over 50 different countries, and it is growing all the time.
What Is Immiguru?
Immiguru is intelligent software that empowers the user to navigate with confidence through complex immigration routes. Take a tour here.
Users enter key data about an assignment (nationality of assignee, host country, plus salary and accompanying dependent details if available) and are provided with detailed and relevant immigration process information for that scenario, including:
- Clear Gantt chart format timelines showing estimated timing for each step
- Detailed lists of supporting documentation, including information on necessary translations, notarisations and legalisations/Apostilles
- Red flag issues
- Qualifying criteria, including minimum salary levels
- Dependent work permissions
- Government guidelines
- Immigration specialist supplier contact details for each destination country
- The system can also generate powerful Reports; for example, overall timing charts for multiple destinations, template pricing sheets, reports on all countries where an immigration medical may be required, and so on.
Increased Efficiency = Reduced Costs
The system is revolutionary because it is web-based and interactive. Instead of having to contact an immigration provider to ask for a specific report, with all the cost and time that this would involve, users can access key immigration data that is relevant to their specific situation in seconds. The information is clear and consistent, so colleagues in London, Hong Kong or São Paolo can all look at the same data, presented the same way, at the same time. Increased efficiency and better communication within the organisation means better use of everyone’s time, fewer missed deadlines and significant cost savings.
Regularly Reviewed and Updated
All the data is regularly reviewed – every four weeks is standard – by a network of tried and tested immigration partners across the globe. This group of lawyers and immigration specialists all have extensive expertise in immigration into their country or region, and their details are prominently listed within the database so that users of the Immiguru software can call them directly if they have a need to discuss a specific case. At Peregrine, we care about giving our clients accurate, useful global immigration data in a format that is clear and easy to understand. Managing global immigration is simple if you know how to handle it, and we can show you how.
The Magic of Technology
Peregrine’s Managing Director, Sophy King, is passionate about the power of technology and was quoted in the most recent edition of Re:Locate magazine, saying:
Technology is like magic. Remember in Harry Potter, the newspapers at Hogwarts have moving, talking pictures? Not just possible now – it’s quite normal. What seemed like fantasy a few years ago is today’s reality. When I first started training staff in global immigration, nearly ten years ago, I used to say to them –I’d write down all the rules and timing of every country for you, only by the time I finished, I’d have to start again. Now, using web-based technology to facilitate online collaboration and data sharing, Immiguru offers our clients exactly that – instant access to rules, timing, document checklists for 50 countries and counting; reviewed by more than 60 immigration professionals worldwide; updated every day. Data sharing is a hot topic. The next step is data curating. Look at Linked in – the most successful and useful groups are those run by strong leaders, who make an effort to start interesting and though-provoking threads, and who filter out the spam, adverts and constant job postings. If 100 professionals in any field pool their collective knowledge and wisdom, that’s a powerful resource right there. But if that resource is managed, shaped, fine-tuned by someone you can trust, it becomes revolutionary.
Wish Us Luck!
The winner of the Re:locate Award for Technological Innovation in Relocation will be announced on 9 May 2013 - wish us luck!
